Primary Instructor:

Sociology may be defined simply as “the study of human groups” or the “study of human social arrangements,” but sociology is also a perspective, a set of methods, a canon of literature, and an ongoing conversation about the patterns, probabilities, principles and processes that characterize society. This course will be divided into three sections:

  1. an introduction to sociology as a discipline and mindset via Allan Johnson’s book, The Forest and the Trees;
  2. the history of sociology — its key figures and the major concepts that have occupied the field over the past century and a half; and
  3. an introduction to ten key issues addressed by contemporary sociology — class, race, gender, sexuality, religion, education, heath care, crime, the media, and the environment.

Students will demonstrate their learning through three non-cumulative tests, a research paper written in stages, and participation in discussion sections and lecture.
